Available at touchGOODS in Southold, it is made of strong maintenance-free synthetic fibers woven on aluminum frames keeping the furniture looking beautiful year after year.


Itza Wood’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty in the Peten region of Guatemala.

Find the feel-good brand at Phoebe and Belle in Cutchogue.
